A couple of road trips coming up in the US...

I did quite a bit of international travel last year - not that I ignored North America, but I definitely visited more user groups and conferences and customer events across the ocean than near to home.

This year is starting off different. I'll be in Cincinnati, Vancouver, Seattle and Denver next week (see for the links to those events).

Right after that in February - I'll be in San Diego, Los Angeles, Seattle and Phoenix for an interesting IOUG set of events. The URLs for those will be posted really soon - but mark the calendar for the week of Feb 21st for those. The format is rather different from the norm - there will be three of us presenting simultaneously. The cast will consist of Andrew Holdsworth (he runs our real world performance group), Graham Wood - the father of ASH and AWR in many respects and myself. We don't always agree (which makes it more interesting) on the nitty gritty details - but as you'll see we are ready and willing to talk it out. Once we've done these first four - we'll have more in the making in the other parts of the US - working the west coast first but will be doing the entire country (that is the plan). I'll keep you updated on that.

In March - I hit Dallas for the annual Hotsos Symposium. This is a conference I always try to make (only missed one of them!) and the list of speakers and topics this year looks awesome. It is definitely something to check out - the training day to be given by Karen Morton is sure to be a really good add on as well if you can stay the full four days. I've found the training days to be something well worth considering attending. To get a full day from someone rather than just session after session with different speakers puts things in a different perspective. In a day someone can deliver content that just isn't possible in a single session environment.

Hi Tom,

A huge "thank you" for your visit to Vancouver today, and for staying afterward to present to VanOUG. It was quite a treat to be able to sit in on three of your talks in one day. I can only imagine how exhausting that gets, so thanks again for engaging with us today.

I'm looking forward to an opportunity to test out Oracle Database Firewall as a query rewrite tool. :)
